Mystery QAL update - the November blocks

I've an update today on the two mystery QALs.   I am using AMB solids for each of these and in both cases reducing the blocks to half size to make a wall hanging size quilt.

For the record, these are not the only mystery QAL's I am doing.  I've made the first block in the Harry Potter QAL.  And Bonnie Hunter's mystery QAL starts Friday making it a grand total of 4.  Do I have a problem?

The first is one sponsored by American Made Brand called My Land.  Block 7 is called Growing Seasons.

I had trouble getting the right lighting for both of these photos.  Here are all 7 of the blocks.

Next up with the Meadow Mystery QAL from Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs.   For this mystery QAL, all I had to get started were really excellent directions on which fabric should be light / medium / dark and some advise on what fabrics would sit next to another fabric so you could validate contrast.

I've downsized such that these HST are 2 1/2 '' unfinished.  (The pattern calls for 4 1/2 ''.)   Here are my September, October and November blocks.   Terrible photo here - more lighting issues.

(Dear Santa, can you bring me some difusing screens so I can take better indoor blog photography?)

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  1. Mystery quilt alongs are one of my weaknesses too. I'm doing the Meadow Mist Mystery and Bonnie's. It's a great way to use up some of the older stash and have fun.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
